Show Notes

After finishing up production on an exciting first season, we asked our founder, lead developer, and your co-host of this podcast to come on and tell his story.

Austin’s background includes everything from growing up in foster care to dropping out of college after landing a full-ride scholarship, and ultimately landing massive app development budgets in his full-service app development agency, Strides Development. 

As we dive in with Austin, you’ll see how he approaches learning something new — and it’s ALL IN. 

As a part of a huge foster family, he learned that he could use his powers of persuasion to “trick” his siblings into doing things that were good for them.

In his brief door-to-door sales career he learned that he could “hack” his way to success by going against what everyone else was doing. 

This is a fun episode and there are a ton of takeaways about learning, skill acquisition, and starting a new venture.

We hope you enjoy.


This show is produced by Strides Development, a full-service app development agency. 

We specialize in taking your ideas and turning them into a finished app in only a few months.
